This West Babylon Senior High School FC President was chosen by Adidas to style their Tubular look book.
Kayla Grimes was one of ten Fashion Club Presidents in the New York City area who had the amazing opportunity to work with Adidas this spring to style the Tubular and NMD look book. Hand-picked by Adidas, the FC Presidents were mentored on set by Zanna Roberts Rassi, professional stylist and Senior Fashion Editor at Marie Claire. The look book is available in Adidas stores nationwide. Read on to learn about Kayla’s experience in her own words.
I was extremely excited when I was contacted to be a part of this Adidas project—I felt like it wasn’t actually happening!
The best part of it was being able to work with Zanna Roberts Rassi on the set, and learn what you really do as a stylist. I didn’t expect for the stylist to be so involved in the actual photo shoot.
The biggest challenge of the whole thing was trying to style two looks in such a short period of time, but I was able to overcome it. I was extremely happy with both of my looks—for Tubular and NMD.
The person who would wear the looks I styled is a girl who likes to mix masculine pieces with girly pieces. I took inspiration from my own personal style and pop culture.
